Description

Very clean, crisp flavor characteristics with low fruitiness and mild ester production. A very versatile yeast for styles that desire dominant malt and hop character. This strain makes a wonderful “House” strain. Mild citrus notes develop with cooler 60-66°F (15-19ºC) fermentations. Normally requires filtration for bright beers.

Please note that 1056 American Ale has been known to bloat when shipping due to the yeast "off-gassing". Please put this yeast in your refrigerator when received, as the yeast will be fine and should still be viable. To view Wyeast's FAQ on what to do with bloated packages, please visit the following link: Wyeast's FAQ

The yeast was very fresh. Fresher than what I can buy locally. Freshest yeast I have ever purchased.

WOW
Used this to make a West Coast IPA. Vigorous fermentation within 12 hours, had to use a blow-off tube! Complete fermentation in 10 days at recommended temperatures, no off flavors. Am currently using again for a Rye IPA.

I'd use it again.
I haven't tasted the results yet but this was some really hard working yeast.

My favorite yeast by far.
I use this in just about everything I brew except porters and stouts. By far one of the best yeast strains in my opinion.

Great for clean, crisp beer at low 60s fermentation
I use 1056 and 1272 for the majority of American beer styles. 1056 has high attenuation and produces a clean, crisp ale when fermented in the low 60s. I also recommend using 1272, especially if you enjoy a touch more bready backend on the beer. I typically grow starters a week before and cold crash/ decant the day of and let the yeast warm up as I brew. Then oxygenate for 60-90 seconds, never takes more than 6-12 hours to form krausen.

Outstanding product
This yeast worked great for my 25 gallon batch of wheat beer. I also added some orange blossom honey to kick it up a notch. Can't wait to keg it and see how great it will taste.

Great yeast
This yeast rips through fermentation every time I use it. Even though I have only used this yeast a few times, I have been impressed whenever I do. The packet was slightly swollen when I received it but that happens quite a bit with this yeast. It did not affect the yeast however since fermentation started quickly and finished quickly as well. Even the starter I made blew out the top of the flask.

arrived partially inflated
It arrived partially inflated even though it was packed with 3 ice packs and other yeast that was not inflated. Almost to inflated to break the inner liner.Makes me wonder if it was already partially inflated before shipment, maybe poor care was taken before shipment...I really don't know

Poor shipping by vendor
Nothing wrong with the yeast, if it worked...but don't order this product by mail through morebeer. I paid extra for the two icepacks in shipping and the yeast still showed up warm to my house. Complete waste of money on the yeast, and the extra shipping costs then to have to go get local yeast and repitch to start the batch.
